Drummers Odyssey 2018

Drummers Odyssey Camp 2018 has been and gone and what an amazing event it was! Seeing all of those people eager and giddy at the prospect of earning from three master educators and players in Pete Cater, Pete Riley and Emanuelle Caplette was great to see.

We brought together the photos that were taken over the weekend and have put them together on this page for everyone to see. You can see how much fun people were having and that was one of the best things about it. Seeing people spill out of the rooms after having their brains. forearms and consciousnesses melted by the teachers and saying it was the best thing they'd done. Excitedly swapping stories with each othe about the particular class they'd just been in and generally hanging out.

We also wanted to say congratulations to AJ Rousell for putting this all together. He worked tirelessly to ensure that everyone had a good time, got goodies from amazing companies and made sure everything ran the way it should have done.

Pete Riley – Drummer’s Odyssey Teachers Profile

Pete Riley drummer

Pete Riley has been a rising force in drums for the past 20 years. His explosive technique and ability to switch hands and feet with apparent ease is the reason why he has been asked to play for the likes of Guthrie Govan, Phil Hilbourne and Republica.

Recently he retired as tutor at ACM, where, for the past 21 years, he has given students the benefit of seeing his incredible technical prowess up close and shown them first hand what it takes to be a session drummer.

Come and learn up close with one of the best drummers in the UK, you won't regret it!

Emmanuelle Caplette has risen to fame in her native Canada, winning Office Franco Québécois Pour La Jeunesse whilst at college and opened the Montreal Jazz festival the following year! She has now played at major music events all over the world (Musikmesse, Uk Drum Show 2017, Switzerland Drum Festival), toured with Andy Summers as part of his Circa Zero band and also appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers and performed a 24 snare drum solo!

She is currently endorsed by Sabian, Sonor, Vic Firth and Evans and has some of the most amazing practice pad rudiment videos I've seen on Youtube!

At the Drummer's Odyssey Camp 2018, at Firebird Studios, you'll be learning up close with Emmanuelle and getting to see why she is seen as one of the leading drum educators in the world right now.

Pete Cater – Drummer’s Odyssey Teacher Profile

Drummers Odyssey - Pete Cater

“We played Leverkusen, Germany one day. Steve Smith was on before us, and Billy Cobham immediately afterwards. Luckily I don’t get scared easily”

To say that Pete Cater is firmly established legend of the UK music scene, would be a trite thing to say. He is quite simply one of the best drummers to come from these shores.

Having worked his way to sharing a stage with Steve Gadd, Ian Palmer and Steve White at the World's Greatest Drummer show in 2015, he has shown time and again why he was the only Brit voted into the top 5 jazz drummers in the world by Rhythm magazine.

At the Drummers Odyssey camp, here at Firebird Studios, you'll be getting un paralleled access to a jazz great, with a maximum of 8 other people in the room with you at the same time. It will take your playing to a new level and possibly give you a greater appreciation of what it takes to be a top level Jazz drummer.
